A United States travel magazine, Travel + Leisure, has once again named Victoria Falls Safari Lodge as one of the 500 best hotels in the world and among the top five in Africa.
Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is one of the many facilities in the portfolio of the leading Zimbabwean hospitality group, Africa Albida Tourism (AAT), in the country’s prime resort city.
The other facilities under the AAT’s grand banner are Victoria Falls Safari Club, Victoria Falls Safari Suites, Lokuthula Lodges, and the Boma & Dinner Drum Show.
Travel + Leisure uses reviews from its 8.1 million readers worldwide who each year share their thoughts on destinations, city hotels, resorts, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, location, service, food and overall value in the World’s Best Awards survey.
The 2020 survey was closed on March 2 and this is the ranking in which AAT’s flagship features as one of the 500 best in the world.
Victoria Safari Lodge is based in the Zambezi National Park and is the second time it has been named one of the 500 best hotels after a similar recognition in 2005.
It was also in the top 25 properties in Africa and Middle East in 2004 and also became the 5th top resort in Africa for 2021, after a similar recognition in 2019. It is the only Zimbabwe facility that made it to the list.
Zimbabwe’s efforts to boost its tourism sector were disturbed by the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
